An open-source exploration of escalating Cab trips through the lens of Uber data

It was not too late when the global ride-hailing market was sparked by transportation giant Uber. It goes to nerves that a company whose only product cum asset is an app on your phone that hails taxis it doesn’t even own, pushed its valuation to $62.5 billion.

Uber’s business model which depends on a middleman between the taxi driver and the traveler and the transactions management on the app has scaled globally covering the majority of cities. Count the numbers here:

Taxi Booking Apps As An Extension Of Your Travel Business

Given the fast inflation of smartphone adoption globally, Uber’s breakthrough doesn’t come as a surprise. But for the one who thinks the competition has saturated and Uber’s playbook has multiplied its dominance internationally leaving no space to implement a similar model then please take a hiatus! Though Uber has become a byword for startups that doesn’t mean Uber has its own industry on rage.

There are arguably the most famous taxi apps that have sprung up with new business models of taxis and have spectacularly managed to stay in power in the long run. And just when you think there’s no more innovation to be had in the sector, run down to the following apps (business models for you), who have taken over the transport industry by reinventing the taxi apps with the best trucking and logistics app development.

  • Ola Cabs The most popular taxi app in India, started as an online cab aggregator in Mumbai and has since expanded into a full transportation service that includes shuttles, ridesharing and even rickshaw rides.
  • Lyft San Francisco-based peer-to-peer ridesharing mobile app that became the largest ridesharing program in the US lets you see available drivers live on a map and book, pay and rate them through your mobile phone. It also offers Lyft Plus for when there are six passengers and Lyft Line to share cabs with people going in the same direction.
  • Didi Chuxing The world’s largest mobile transportation platform, operating in 400 cities in China offers taxis, private cars, social ridesharing, carpooling, chauffeurs, buses and services for companies.
  • Kabbee An intelligent taxi-hailing company in London that curates and compares potential rides from the city’s many minicab firms to get travelers a good deal on a cab ride with a driver that’s as close as possible.
